On the milk jug tests what kind of mushroom did the accubonds get? Was it tight to the shank or just kind of normal with say 1.5-2x diameter??
Thanks for you input....I will load them breathing easier. Don Kraky

I have shot and recovered bullets from gallon milk jugs for years. Here are some recovered bullets to give you an idea of how they perform.
160 gr AB 280 AI 3000 fps MV 100 yd recovery
225 gr AB 338 RUM 3050 fps
You also may want to do a search for AB performance at www.noslerreloading.com
There are many succes stories with AB's there.
Also, the 30 cal 180 gr BT has been beefed up and is more robust. I would still go with an AB if it were available.
